Varanasi: Slamming Centre's decision to allow FDI in multi-brand retail sector, Senior BJP leader and  Murli Manohar Joshi said that the move would be "disastrous" for retail traders, farmers and small shopkeepers.

During his three-day visit to his parliamentary constituency here, Joshi, who is also the Public Accounts Committee Chairman, alleged that the central government had taken the decision under "foreign pressure" as he appealed to people to prepare for a Bharat Bandh.

The BJP leader also appealed to all the parties opposing the policy along with workers and farmers bodies to jointly organise a protest demonstration against the Centre's decision.
